Russell Group response to UCAS June Deadline 2021 data

08 July 2021

In response to the latest UCAS undergraduate application data following the 30 June deadline (8 July 2021), which shows there are more applicants than in previous years with a corresponding rise in offers from universities, Dr Hollie Chandler, Head of Policy (Higher Education) at the Russell Group, said:

“It is positive to see continued strong demand for quality higher education, which will help provide undergraduates with high-level skills and opportunities that will be crucial both to their individual success and the needs of the economy as we emerge from the pandemic. 

“The increase in offers by higher tariff providers to UK 18 year-olds, including those from the most deprived areas, reflects our universities’ commitment to be as fair and flexible as possible to ensure students are not disadvantaged in their applications by the changes in the awarding of A-levels and equivalent qualifications this year.”
